With everyone and their uncle (well, maybe not all the warbloggers...) wondering where the heck Iraq's supposed WMDs are, I think it's important to point out that no evidence whatsoever about Saddam's alleged ties to al Qaeda has surfaced. Remember, Administration officials said they had proof!
(Opportunistic moves by al Qaeda fighters -- who were among many Islamic volunteers from all over the Arab world, including such ostensible allies as -- yes! -- Saudi Arabia -- don't count, nor does the purported Osama bin Laden statement calling on Muslims to resist the invaders. Although the latter does fairly nicely point out how much Bush's coveted war on Iraq played into bin Laden's hands. No wonder Bush never mentions him any more...)
Of course, I don't think even a lot of warbloggers, let alone members of the Bush Administration, seriously believed this one, although it certainly helped their war fever that a good chunk of the country came to believe that most of the 9/11 hijackers came from Iraq (correct answer: Saudi Arabia!). I know I certainly didn't believe the claims myself.
But not believing it doesn't make it any less of a stinkin' lie.
